The chief executive of Hua An Fund Management Co has been detained on suspicion of economic crimes, the Wall Street Journal reported, quoting a company statement. Han Fanghe did not report for work on Monday.

Hua An's five shareholders are all companies owned by the Shanghai municipal government and all were ultimately answerable to Chen.
